Sister Wendy: Art of the Gospel

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

Watch Monday, November 25, 2013 at 10pm on WMHT TV.

A life less ordinary.

Sister Wendy Becket, all teeth, glasses and habit, burst onto our screens in the 1990s. An instant star in America and the UK, her secret is a rare ability to tell us the stories within paintings and connect us to their big emotional insights. Until now, however, she has told us nothing about her life's story, her unexpected international fame or the core of her faith.

For the first time Wendy looks back at her life, revealing intimate thoughts, reminiscences and self-doubt. At the same time she uses great old master paintings in the National Gallery, the Louvre and in the Fitzwilliam, and some modern paintings, to tell us the gospel stories that were once universally familiar, but are now regularly disregarded. These are the stories that inspired her life of devotion; stories that she feels, with absolute certainty, have relevance today.
